Beware the man who fakes a limp.

As the man hobbles away, he turns around, and gives this one last piece of advice “Beware the Matador.  They are not to be trusted.  In fact, avoid them at all costs.”  He turns away from the party once more and continues on his journey; beaten, broken, and miserable, he continues down the road until he is nothing but a tiny speck in the wastes that were once New York.

Wasteland

The ruins of New York, only slightly exaggerated... For now.

John, X8-332, is a man of many talents and surprises.  Every time you think you begin to know and understand him, you learn something else.  I’ve previously described the first encounter the party has with John, and if you haven’t read that, I recommend going back and reading all the AYCOoB articles before continuing on, however, I didn’t explain his appearance properly.

At 5′ 8″ and 138 pounds John would be considered “overweight” according to the BMI.  However, you should consider the fact that he is former military and has… Enhancements. And yet it is imposing.

When the players first meet John he is a staggering 31 years old, which is impressive considering the physical stats of the guy (which I will get to momentarily).  His hair is stark white (however it is often dyed a different color, depending on the “mission at hand,” and is always kept pulled into a very tight ponytail.

I’m going to be honest with you, out of all the NPC’s I’ve created over the years, John is probably my favorite.  In fact I’ve put more into his back story than I have most of my PC’s, and he’s not even complete yet.
